SOCOM.com Phase 2.0!

David Brothers's Avatar Posted by SOCOM.com

The new SOCOM.com has officially launched!

While SOCOM.com is still in beta, it’s open to the public and has many new features for SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation fans. There are a lot of changes to check out, so let’s get into it from top to bottom.

At the very top of the site is a scrolling ticker. It’s a live feed from My SOCOM, and it lists the top rated players in a variety of categories, number of players currently online, and even a feed of the titles of the latest blog posts. If you see something you like, click it to get more info!

Just below that is our new menu bar. Mousing over Community or My SOCOM reveals a couple of drop down menus. Community gives you direct access to the forums and the blog.

My SOCOM is pretty meaty. You can access My SOCOM itself, which is your gateway to the Leaderboards, your clan, profile, and many other options. If you need to check your mail, get the latest in clan updates, or compare your stats to a standout player, you can do that here. You can even recruit new clan members or view the manual for SOCOM: Confrontation.

To fully appreciate SOCOM.com, you’re going to have to log in with your PSN ID. Use the same email address and password you use on your PLAYSTATION 3. By doing this, you can use your PSN ID on the forums and in My SOCOM.

SOCOM.com is in beta and we’ve got some cool new features coming your way in the near future. Stay tuned, and come on over and check us out.

I play socom everyday. Thanks guys for updating socom.com. The opening page looks nice, but the rest is still in the same style.
I wish i could go to this page while I’m still in the game.
Any word on new videos hitting the ‘movie’ section in confrontation?
Awsome Update guys. Now that this is out the way, when can we see new maps, weapons, etc.
Later

SOCOM? Please stop wasting space here on the Playstation.Blog with stories related to SOCOM. I am pretty sure that nobody -and i truly mean- nobody on this planet is interested in the SOCOM franchise anymore. Hell, you have released a broken product at full price and taken you sweet time to fix the issues (they will never be fixed). Too late folks, KZ2 is just around the corner. In fact, i already have my copy.

Oh and i have heard that you will be releasing SOCOM in Europe on March 18..is that a joke? I thought Europeans had SOCOM for months now..argh you truly have killed to SOCOM franchise.

DEBO2U said:

February 10th, 6:30 am

One more thing, as a clan leader of [DOT] Defenders of Truth, this is awsome. I can reply and send message when not in socom the game.
And it rates or leader boards my friends not just the whole world.
Great work guys.

Bloody_Marcel said:

February 10th, 6:36 am

Fix the socom.com link. ;)

Bildo818 said:

February 10th, 6:37 am

THANK FOR THE SUPPORT! I love being able to see my friends online playing while at work and sending them a message telling the clan when I will be on. I also am really liking the stat comparison. That is a great addition. If we could get those hit charts for each weapon to see where our bullets are hitting that would be great. Maybe some replay/screenshot features also.

Regardless, you don’t have to be worrying about Bildo818 leaving SOCOM for Killzone…

DEBO2U said:

February 10th, 6:37 am

Last thing, since we talking about socom.
What and how do I/my clan earn officer credits?
How does this work? And the ranking system seems to work better for some and not all.

OverlordSpike said:

February 10th, 6:37 am

i liked socom until i got resistance and soon to be killzone, nd whats with all the haze hate? i love me some haze

MakulaTolkien said:

February 10th, 6:40 am

@1: Shut up man, go and play Socom for one minute and you’ll find way to many servers full of people enjoying this great game..

SPOPS said:

February 10th, 6:51 am

UMMMMM… How many days ago did this officially launch??? I guess the PS Blog is late to the party.

HAZER said:

February 10th, 6:53 am

nice but its like 4 months late, should of been out on release along with all features that the box said was in it but wasnt. the party system they added is terrible. i dont like complaining but everyone who plays knows what i mean. this could of really be an amazing game if everything worked. this game should of been delayed. socom = ps2 game with better graphics.

DEBO2U said:

February 10th, 6:55 am

I can’t do any Clan actions. Like I cant post a message. Or fill out the recruiting section. I typed two long detailed paragraphs and then it tells me ‘server timed out’.
Damn, ill try back L8R

PuMa said:

February 10th, 6:56 am

@16: I’ve played SOCOM for many many minutes. Ever since the first game. I WAS a huge fan and greatly looked forward to Confrontation. However, I have major issues supporting a product that was sold to me a something that it wasn’t. It would have been nice if the game was complete when it first released.

Locster60 said:

February 10th, 6:59 am

I have allot of friends that i met and still today talk to or meet up with from the original Socrack. Those days are long gone. After Socom 2 they ruined this game. I have tried to get my self to play it but it is horrible. Who knows if it will ever live up to the original again. I doubt it. I am looking forward to Killzone now for the PS3 otherwise COD5 should be around the corner.

Superottowa said:

February 10th, 7:00 am

Socom Con… is a great game and yes i still play it!

SPARDA said:

February 10th, 7:01 am

I wish I bought this SOCOM on disc instead of PS Store…. I would have returned a few months ago.

Grassroots said:

February 10th, 7:01 am

Seriously, anyone with anything negative to say about SOCOM needs to be quiet. You don’t speak for the regulars that play everyday. I’m just tired of hearing about it, while many of us just love to play the game. Move on if you have nothing positive to say.

Thanks for the update the site works nicely, still hoping for that rumors DLC with a few old maps, and new ones.

Dead1yAssass1n said:

February 10th, 7:17 am

Where do I start? 4 months after the game is released, we still have a broken game that still doesn’t have ALL OF THE FEATURES LISTED ON THE BOX AND IN THE MANUAL. How can people support this? We are being spoon-fed garbage by game developers and we are just taking it. This game was removed from my PS3 the day after the 1.3 update. After seeing 3 patches do almost nothing for the game’s stability, seeing the change log go from “the last remaining issue causing the lag hiccup” to “fixed one of the issues causing the lag hiccup” , seeing all the NEW problems the updates caused, AND seeing them implement a broken party system, SOCOM was removed from my PS3. My PS3 will never again be cursed by a game made by Slant 6. This game will never be fixed and will never contain all of the features that are listed on the box. I feel violated that I bought a broken, incomplete game for full price. This is unacceptable and both Slant 6 and Sony(for approving the release of the game) should be ashamed of themselves. Anybody who supports this game and *tries* to act like there are no problems is just a sheep who likes being spoon-fed this garbage.

Dead1yAssass1n said:

February 10th, 7:19 am

@Grassroots

Without us, there would not have been the 1.2 or 1.3 patches(which didn’t fix much). Without the people pointing out the flaws in this horrible game(and there are plenty), Slant 6 wouldn’t fix the issues(or try).

So run along with your “negative comments should just be quiet”. I PAID FOR THIS GAME. I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE UPSET THAT I WAS SOLD A BROKEN, INCOMPLETE GAME.

Marsz85 said:

Links are broken just like the game. Can you guys do anything right?

SOOPERGOOMAN187 said:

February 10th, 7:40 am

At 1, you mustn’t be a player otherwise you wouldn’t say that. I play Socom Confrontation EVERY SINGLE DAY. I play for about 6 hours at a time, sure there is lag but really how many games out there are completely lag free? Offline games are and thats it. Get over it.
I just would like to see a few maps added to the mix. The maps I and alot of the Socom Community would like to see added are:

Sujo
Harvester
Chain Reaction
Threshold
A LARGER MORE OPEN CROSSROADS
Killing Fields
Blackwoods (jungle maps ROCK!!)
and any other maps you’d like to add

Don’t forget thedy have to be FREE to make up for all the hangups we’ve experienced, like stats resetting on their own, Major Lag at times. Please fix the latency monitor so that those who choose to use “LAG SWITCHES” get booted from the room. Also I can’t find Socom in the Store anymore as I would like to buy it for a friend whose bluray has died. Me I have YLOD but my roommate has a ps3 also so we take turns playing socom. He only started two weeks ago and he’s gotten quite good at it.
I am part of Clan UNF: The UNFORGIVEN.

Dead1yAssass1n said:

February 10th, 7:43 am

@Soopergooman187

So you say that lag shouldn’t be complained about…..yet you expect FREE DLC because of the lag.

So which is it? If it’s a problem, then it should be complained about. If it’s not a problem, then you shouldn’t be getting FREE stuff because of it.

KillerBread said:

February 10th, 7:44 am

what would i play killzone 2 or a half a game?

lakaiHIGH said:

February 10th, 7:46 am

cool new features man! always find these pleasurable. i still need to get socom for my PS3 and im currently eyeing the ones at circuit city hoping they’ll drop more than 30% off it.

peace,
Lh

Tyrannousdotnet said:

February 10th, 7:57 am

I dont think this will make the game good.

marcindpol said:

February 10th, 8:02 am

yeah i am eropean and i am not going to buy this broken game, it is a joke to sell incomplete game SONY it is a fcuking joke!!!.
i am not going to support this game for the sake of rules!!!.
now K2 is around the corner and other good games as well so it is pointless to release this crap, no one is going to buy it!!!, thats what i wish you Sony and Slant 6!!!

StalkingSilence said:

February 10th, 8:02 am

The links in the article don’t work – socom.com is appended to the end of the current URL. I am going to the site to check it out though. I’ve never been a huge SOCOM fan, but I totally would buy the game if I had more time. I really would like to support the developer since they are responding to the community’s wishes – I’m just short on cash and time right now. Maybe in the future!

BIG-SLUG said:

February 10th, 8:10 am

All you haters of this game go home and quit complaining already. It’s obvious that you people just weren’t that good at the game, and couldn’t take getting your butts kicked on the regular. Maybe you’ll feel more at home with kz2 where you can set it on EZ and have your AI buddies do all the work for you while you sit on the psblog and complain about games you don’t play anymore. boo-urns to you all

Swedgen said:

February 10th, 8:16 am

I play Socom when my friends are on, even though I pretty much agree with most of the negative things said here.

Can the website and put all those resources into the game, where it’s wanted and needed.

SmogItUp said:

February 10th, 8:17 am

Yeah the website is sweet. This game brings out all the haters /6. Keep workin, we need a map pack!

remanutd5 said:

February 10th, 8:19 am

i wasnt fan of the series back in the days( ps2 era) confrontation is my first socom game but i love it even though it has a few technical problems but i completely love the tactical aspect of the game , very addictive game i must say

Sneeches said:

February 10th, 8:25 am

socom is broken and was a huge failure. I will be playing killzone 2 here soon and never have to touch this game again.

SOOPERGOOMAN187 said:

February 10th, 8:30 am

The Major Lag I was reffering to was back at launch, if you could read properly you would see that. There is lag now but is only minor. I don’t want stuff for free because of lag. I want the free stuff because MY STATS RESET EVERY DAY! That and the fact that most of the maps are tiny. That is what I meant. FOOL!

Come meet me in America VS Europe any night of the week. I’ll take you on and OWN you in ever round.

GUINNESSS said:

February 10th, 8:31 am

Socom is complete crap.. Waste of money..

John-Shooter said:

February 10th, 8:32 am

a little late but still nice.. still waitin for socom to get where it needs to be so i let a friend check it out.. i played it a few weeks ago and its alot better than where it was at launch/beta but i couldnt get into it due to the fact that i was on R2 on a day to day basis..

and all that other [DELETED] needs to stop about how this is worse than haze i own both and thier great games… just way too over-looked.. people are so martha-stewartish about games these days… i mean we’ve acknowledged the fact that the game screwed up when it came out months ago … let it drop already and go play another game .. damn people

SOOPERGOOMAN187 said:

February 10th, 8:32 am

Guinness is complete crap in a can. waste of money also…

DaxMontana said:

February 10th, 8:36 am

Is there anywhere on your new BETA website where I can request a refund for the pre-BETA game you sold me?

The1stMJC said:

February 10th, 8:37 am

Can the game come outta beta? it is still plagued with problems and is a damn shame. I hope next time Slant Six will do better on a game or Zipper takes the Franchise back.

mywhitenoise said:

February 10th, 8:38 am

This game was horrible, and sold it only a day after I bought it. Kept the headset though :)

An online game that didn’t function online. Seriously, how did you guys get away with releasing this crap.?

DaxMontana said:

February 10th, 8:40 am

Easily the biggest disappointment of a game in many years.

DaxMontana said:

February 10th, 8:41 am

…other than LAIR of course.

Berae said:

February 10th, 8:45 am

@47

dont get me started on lair! It was an awesome game, only people who cant make up their own mind said that it was bad because they only read reviews saying omg i cant handle the control, i suck and blah blah blah

mywhitenoise said:

February 10th, 8:46 am

SUPERGOOMAN187, you play 6 hours a day EVERY day? I know this is a gaming blog, but damn dude…you are a LOSER.
I hardly have 6 hours to eat, feed my dog, spend time with my girlfriend, shower, and play a little bit of games after I get home from work.
